After losing some leaders, Calgary underwent a lineup change in the offseason, but now they are a contender for the playoffs. Darryl Sutter is working hard to ensure his men compete against the league's more experienced and well-played squads. The Reds and Yellows are doing well, as evidenced by four victories in their last six meetings. They defeated Tampa Bay and Columbus in two previous games, 6-3 and 4-3. So Calgary climbed to eighth place in the Western Conference standings, but the entire playoff battle is still to come.
Chicago, alas, is having an utterly dismal season without any real objectives. Whereas the Hawks at least attempted to look decent in past years, they parted with several young and talented hockey players this summer. The results have been downright embarrassing. All the more surprising is that they suddenly perked up in January and made a nice run, winning six of their seven games. The abnormal results are over as they lost to Los Angeles and Vancouver, 1-2 and 2-5, dropping last place in the Western Conference.

Chicago is the worst team in the Western Conference, but recently they had a sudden burst of activity. Of course, it could not continue, so the Reds and Blacks were left without points in the last two meetings. Now it will be tough to count on their success. The Canadiens have been on a good run lately. They've won four of the last five home games and scored seven points. In their head-to-head encounters with Chicago, the Flames sometimes beat the opponents.
The teams have been playing fun and entertaining lately. The statistics of their meetings say that in the last five meetings, the opponents sent 38 goals (7.60 on average per game).
